Foliage and Shopping

The foliage is absolutely beautiful in New England right now! In my walk to the train or bus in the morning, I just want to stop, sip my coffee outside, and take it all in. This past weekend was mostly sunny, so I made sure to enjoy the many parks in my neighborhood and take in the foliage. 



What better for a walk in the park than a comfy pair of jeans, a tshirt, an over-sized cardigan, and some loafers I've had since high-school?


I took these pictures during my weekly scramble to find shopping something to do to get me out of the house while Mike watches every football game ever on Sunday.

Outfit: Jeans- F21+; TShirt- Old Navy; Cardigan- Vintage Men's, thrifted; Loafers- Naturalizer circa 2004
This Sunday? I went to not one, but two Marshalls. After trying on every pair of booties in my size between the two stores, I bought some nail polish, a pepper grinder and some gummy dinosaurs. Success?

  1. So adorable!!! :) Love this outfit. I love the over sized cardigan. Ha-ha and your day to get to do whatever you want- being a football fan its like I have a one day weekend to get shopping and errands done because Sunday is dedicated to football!

  2. I love Marshalls! And any shopping trip ending in gummy dinosaurs is a win in my book :) You look so pretty in green and the leaves look amazing as a backdrop!

    1. I can't seem to go to TJMaxx or Marshalls without buying some sort of candy.

  3. I totally agree about the foliage here right now, it's so rare! Love your cute green cardi. And that is one of the reasons why I love Marshalls... if you can't find a good outfit to buy, there's always some random items like a pepper grinder! :)

  5. I love the green cardi with the stripes! I can never find anything good at my Marshall's...I think other Marshall's must be much better than mine!

    1. Some are better than others. There are four that I can get to easily on transit and they're all different.

  9. Ugggh, I think we've been having the same problem with those silly booties! It's crazy how hard it is to find a cute pair that doesn't hit at a awkward place on the ankle or is super tight. :P
    I love these pictures of you, you look so cute and relaxed! (Your hair is gorgeous.) This is such a cute, relaxing outfit, sometimes a great pair of blue jeans says it all.

  11. I love your green sweater! It looks like the perfect sweater to lounge around in all day, even better if its paired with a good movie and some hot chocolate :p

    I'm jealous about the way fall looks for you all. I'm in Texas and our fall looks like spring, with a hint of a breeze. No autumn leaves, no oranges and browns. What I would give to take a picture with a background like yours!

    You remind me so much of a friend I have here. She makes the same facial expressions and talks the way you do :p

    1. I feel your pain. I grew up in South Texas and I definitely missed the seasons. I'll be jealous of your weather in March when it's gorgeous there, but still winter here.

  12. I love the Fall colors! And I agree, oversized sweaters are a must for this time of year!

  13. Hi dear, I just wanted to come over and say good luck real fast! I'm sure you're already battering down the hatches down there in Boston with that storm heading in. Take care of yourself and I hope it just blows over you guys there.
